CORPORATION COUNSEL. 

The Clerk presented the following 
communication submitted by the Cor- 
poration Counsel, which was ordered 
published and referred to the select 
Committee on Track Elevation: 

Law Depaktment, } 
December 2, 1911. J 
To the Honorable, the City Council, of 
the City of Chicago: 
Gentlemen — At its meeting, Novem- 
ber 20, 1911, your Honorable Body 
passed the following order: 

"Ordered, That the Corporation 
Counsel be and he hereby is requested 
to furnish this body with a legal opin- 
ion as to the rights of the Illinois 
Central Railroad Company, in, upon 
and along 71st street in this City." 

The following is a short history of the 
matter in question. 

1. — August 2, 1869, the Board of 
Trustees of the Town of Hyde Park 
passed an ordinance giving permission 
to the Illinois Central Railroad Com- 
pany to lay down a single railroad 
track with necessary turnouts, and to 
operate therein their engines and cars on 
71st street, beginning at the right of 
way of said company, thence east along 
said street to what is known as Rail- 
road avenue. 

2. — From an ordinance passed March 
15, 1873, by the President and Board 
of Trustees of the Village of Hyde 
Park, it appears that the Illinois Cen- 
tral Railroad Company had transferred 
its rights under the above ordinance to 
the 'Chicago and Indiana Railroad Com- 
pany. In addition to confirming and 
approving said transfer, this ordinance 
grants permission to the latter com- 
pany to construct, maintain and oper- 
ate forever a railroad in said 71st 
street from the Illinois Central Rail- 
road Company's right of way to said 
Railroad avenue; provided the company 
shall be confined to a strip of land not 
exceeding 2i4 feet in width along the 
north line of said street, etc. 

3.— September 18, 1882, the Presi- 
dent and Board of Trustees of the Vil- 
lage of Hyde Park passed an ordinance 



December 4, 1911. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC 



1837 



repealing the last mentioned ordinance. 

This would seem to be the concluding 
chapter as far as the foregoing ordi- 
nances are concerned, and their valid- 
ity need therefore not be questioned here. 

However, on the 3d day of April, 
1882. the President and Board of Trus- 
tees of the Village of Hyde Park had 
passed an "Ordinance granting right of 
way to the South Chicago Railroad 
Company," for a line of railroad with 
one or more tracks, beginning at a point 
on the Illinois Central Railroad Com- 
pany near 70th street, thence south- 
easterly on a curve to 71st street, and 
thence east on the centre 30 feet of 71st 
street to Railroad avenue, etc. As a 
matter of fact the same ordinance grants 
the right of way along Railroad avenue 
to 81st street. In addition to the fore- 
going privileges the company was 
granted the right to construct and oper- 
ate a telegraph line along its right of 
way. The grant runs to the company, 
its successors, grantees, lessees and as- 
signees. 

The company accepted this ordinance 
April 10, 1882. 

This is the ordinance under which 
the Illinois Central Railroad Company 
operates in 71st street and to .South 
Chicago. 

Having given the foregoing history, 
I desire to call your attention to the 
following : 

1. — The ordinance fails to state that 
the consent of the property owners along 
the right of way has been obtained. 

2. — No such consents are found at- 
tached to the original ordinance. 

3. — The official proceedings of the 
Board of Trustees are silent with refer- 
ence to such property owners petition. 
It should be borne in mind in this 
connection that the Village of Hyde 
Park organized under the Cities and 
Villages Act in 1872. 

Should investigation disclose the fact 
'that the Board of Trustees acted with- 
out having such property owners peti- 
tion before it then the ordinance must 
be held invalid and void. 

"The power to act lies dormant un- 
til the requisite number of owners 
authorize its exercise by petition. 
When they do so, the limitation upon 
the power of the Council no longer ex- 
ists. That body is then prepared to 
deal with the railroad companies, and 
not before."

RESOLUTIONS ON DEATH OF AED. BAULER. 

A special committee consisting of Aid. 
Clettenberg. Chairman, and Aid. Twigg, 
Beilfuss, Coughlin, Geiger, Reinberg and 
Hey. appointed November 25, 1911, to 
participate in perfecting the funeral 



arrangements of the late' Herman J. 
Bauler, and to prepare suitable resolu- 
tions concerning his death, presented 
the following resolution: 

The City of Chicago mourns the death 
of Herman J. Bauler. 

In his removal from the activities of 
this life a loss is sustained by the City 
Council of one of its ablest and best 
beloved members. Stricken down in the 
prime of young manhood and in the 
achievement of merited success, he leaves 
with this Council the memory of obli- 
gations performed to the fullest meas- 
ure and the duties of citizenship to 
city and country well discharged. 

He was chosen by his fellow citizens 
to fill the civic office of Alderman from 
the Twenty-second Ward, and at all 
times the fidelity and devotion to duty 
that marked him in the various rela- 
tions of life rendered him conspicuous 
in his fight for the rights of his con- 
stituents and of the whole people of the 
City against corporate aggression and 
privilege. Young in years and heart, of 
sunny disposition, with cheery smile and 
ready hand, he pursued with indefati- 
gable purpose and ceaseless attention 
the great projects upon which his ener- 
gies were bent. 

Cut off from his great purposes al- 
most at the moment of the fulfillment 
of his projects, he leaves with us a rec- 
ord as a patriotic and useful citizen and 
with his acquaintances and the people 
of the City at large the memory of a 
genial and devoted friend. 

The City of Chicago, by its Council, 
testifies to the world its appreciation of 
the character, worth and services of 
Herman J. Bauler, its grief at his un- 
timely death, and its profound and sin- 
cere sympathy with his family. 

Be It, Therefore, Resolved by th°. City 
Council of the City of Chicago, That a 
copy of this testimonial to the memory 
of our departed friend be spread upon 
the records of the Council and that a 
copy thereof, suitably engrossed, be for- 
warded to his widow.

The following is the said order as 
passed : 

Ordered, That the following amounts 
of money due the City of Chicago, on 
water claims hereto attached (and 
made a part of this order), be and the 
same are hereby decreased in full from 
and upon the books of the Bureau of 
Water, for the reasons indicated in said 
list of claims. 

And the claims to be decreased are as 
follows : 
Rose & Alvah B. Terry, 5252 

W'ayne avenue #> $5.62 

Reason. Said parties reside at Hunt- 
ington, W. Va.. Deny the claim and as- 
sert they never used water during said 
period of time, and that all their bills 
were paid in full up to November, 1910. 
It would cost more to enforce this claim 
legally than the amount involved. 
C. A. Hitchcock, 5704 West On- 
tario street $ .63 

Reason. From investigation it ap- 
pears that this party never occupied said 
premises nor ever owned said premises, 
and that the same is evidently a mis- 
take. 
Mrs. Evans (deceased), 20 Waver- 

ly place $1.42 

Reason. It would cost more to file 
said claim in the Probate Court than 
the amount of the claim itself, and it 
is therefore recommended that the same 
be decreased. 
Charles C. Smith, rear of 1135 

Dearborn street _ $3.54 

Reason. Inasmuch as address of 
party alleged to be liable is unknown, 
and there is no information at hand to 
work upon, and at the same time the 
claim is small, its decrease is recom- 
mended. 

Adams Brothers, 916-918 East For- 
ty-third street $50.07 

Reason. The estate of Adams Broth- 
ers' Company is closed. Final divi- 
dends were declared, and, inasmuch as 
the city was notified too late of the in- 
solvency of said firm, it was never able 
to file its claim, and, therefore, said 
claim is uncollectible. 
Jessie M. Crane, 406 Loomis street. $3.50 
Reason. Said party is supposed to 
reside at Birmington, ' Vt., according to 
information given by the Water Office, 
but there is no such place as Birmington 
or Birmingham, Vt. The claim is, 
therefore, unenforcible. 



1884 



UNFINISHED BUSINESS. 



December 4, 1911. 



Illinois Fruit Wine Distilling 

Company, 2801 Quinn street. . .$26.89 
Reason. This firm was in possession 
of the United States Marshal on ac- 
count of illicit operation, and all such 
trace of this concern and efforts to lo- 
cate it have proved in vain. Under the 
circumstances said bill is unenforcible. 

D. W. Campbell, 430 Barry ave- 
nue $3.83 

Reason. Party alleged to be liable is 
deceased, and no claim was ever filed 
against his estate, and if claim was 
filed, it would cost more to enforce the 
same than the amount of the claim it- 
self. 

H. E. Taylor, 179-185 Randolph 

street . . ' $13.76 

Reason. All letters sent to party al- 
leged to be liable returned for "Insuffi- 
cient address," and no trace of the party 
can be found. 

V. Du Paul, 3416-18 West Twelfth 

street $25.6<3 

Ren son. All property belonging to 
Du Paul was seized by the bailiff of 
the Municipal Court, and evidently sold 
and from further investigation it ap- 
pears that said party, who cannot be 
located is absolutely insolvent. ' 



Aid. Reinberg moved to proceed to 
the consideration of the report of the 
Committee on Local Transportation on

after the word "thereof" and insert a

middle of the sixth line of Section 34 
insert the letter "i" between the letters

Amend an ordinance entitled "An Or- 
dinance Requiring and Authorizing the 
Chicago City Railway Company to Con- 
struct, Maintain and Operate Certain 
Extensions of and Additions to Its Line 
of Street Railway", recommended for 
passage by the Committee on Local

the following particulars: 

Insert in Section 2 of the Operating

ALSO, 

A veto message as follows: 

Office of the Mayor, j 
Chicago, December 11, 1911. J 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith with- 
out my approval, an ordinance passed 
by your Honorable Body at its last regu- 
lar meeting, amending Section 669 of 
Article XIX of Chapter XVI of the 
Chicago Code of 1911, because I am 
advised by the Commissioner of Build- 
ings that this amendment was passed 
without consultation with his office, 
though the subject matter of said amend- 
ment had been suggested by him. 

I attach hereto a communication 
from the Commissioner of Buildings, 
which I would ask to have published 
and referred with the said ordinance to 
your Committee on Buildings. 
Respectfully yours, 

{Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

The following communication from the 
Commissioner of Buildings was sub- 
mitted with the foregoing veto message: 

Department of Buildings, } 
Chicago, December 11, 1911. J 

Eon. Carter E. Earrison, Mayor, City 
of Chicago: 

Dear Sir — I wish to file an objec- 
tion to Section 669 of Article XIX of 
Chapter XVI of The Chicago Code of 
1911 as amended by the City Council at 
its meeting of December 4th. The 
amendment does not offer the encourage- 
ment for the construction of inside fire 
escapes, as was intended that it should, 
and therefore leaves it optional with 
owners as to whether an interior or ex- 
terior fire escape is to be erected. The 
amendment should be more specific in its 



nature, so as to encourage the erection of 
inside stairway fire escapes and thus do 
away with exterior fire escapes to the 
greatest possible extent. This end can 
be reached only through the passage of 
an amendment that will direct the con- 
structing of inside stairways and thus 
discourage entirely the use of outside 
fire escapes. 

Very respectfully, 
(Signed) Henry Ericsson 

Commissioner of Buildings. 

Aid. Britten moved to reconsider the 
vote by which the said ordinance vetoed 
by His Honor, the Mayor, was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Britten moved to refer the said 
ordinance to the Committee on Build- 
ing Department.

To the Eonorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith with- 
out my approval an ordinance passed 
at the last regular meeting of your 
Honorable Body, vacating a part of the 
east and west 15 feet of the public 
alley north of and adjoining the north 
line of Lot 101 and south of and ad- 
joining the south line of Lot 126, in 
Givin's and Gilbert's Subdivision, for 
the reason that Section 2 thereof is not 
in proper form, as there is no provision 
requiring the beneficiaries of said ordi- 
nance to pay the expense of constructing 
sidewalks and curbs across the entrances 
to the alley vacated similar to the adja- 
cent sidewalks and curbs. 

Respectfully, 

(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Richert moved to reconsider the 
vote by which the said ordinance ve- 
toed by His Honor, the Mayor, was

Gentlemen — I return herewith with- 
out my approval an ordinance passed

13 of Chapter 79 an additional article 
to be known as Article 14 and entitled 
"Regulations concerning the use, opera- 
tion and equipment of Motor Vehicles 
and Motor Cycles," for the reason that 
I am advised by the Law Department 
that there is some question as- to the 
validity of the provisions contained in 
Section 2728J of said amendatory ordi- 
nance, and for the further reason that 
the phraseology of Sections 2728F, 
2728G and 2728H is not satisfactory. 

I respectfully recommend that the 
vote by which the ordinance was passed 
be reconsidered and that the ordinance 
be re-passed with Sections 2728F, 2728H, 
and 2728J omitted and with a new sec- 
tion substituted for Section 272'8G 
which shall be designated as Section 
2728G which new section shall be in the 
following language: 

"Section 2728G. Vehicles Not to 
Be Operated by Persons Under Cer- 
tain Age or Incapacitated from Using 
Hands and Arms Freely.) It shall 
be unlawful for any person who is 
under sixteen years of age, and it 
shall be unlawful for any person who 
is under eighteen years of age, un- 
less accompanied by parent, guardian 
or other adult person, or for any per- 
son who is incapacitated from using 
freely his or her arms or hands

ly using both feet, to operate 
any motor vehicle or motor cycle 
on any street, alley or public

owner of a motor vehicle or motor 
cycle to permit any person subject 
to the disqualifications or incapacity 
above mentioned to operate a motor 
vehicle or motor cycle on any street, 
alley or public place of this city." 

I further recommend that the omitted 
sections designated as Sections 2728F, 
2728H and 2728J be re-referred to the 
committee on Judiciary for further con- 
sideration and amendment. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor.

The following communication, which 
was, together with the communication 
and the agreement transmitted there- 
with, referred to the Committee on Har- 
bors, Wharves' and Bridges. 

Office of the Mayor. 
Chicago, December 11, 1911. 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I have the honor to 
transmit herewith a communication 
from the South Park Commissioners, 
transmitting an agreement made be- 
tween the South Park Commissioners 
and the Illinois Central Railroad Com- 
pany, relative to the acquiring by the 
South Park Commissioners of all the 
riparian rights owned by the said rail- 
road company between 51st street and 
Park Row. 

The purpose of this agreement is the 
acquiring by the Park 'Commissioners of 
the riparian rights in question,, in order 
that a park with an outer boulevard may 
be located, connecting Grant Park and 
Jackson Park on the Lake Front, and 
that a site on the Lake Front, in close 
proximity to the downtown district, may 
be provided for the Field Columbian 
Museum, 

In order that this agreement may be 
made effective, it is necessary that cer- 
tain things be done by the City of Chi- 
cago, namely. 

First. That the Citv grant to the 



1932 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



December 11, 1911. 



South Park Commissioners all its ri- 
parian rights in the basin south of 
Grant Park, and also the riparian rights 
adjacent to the land upon which the 
Thirty-ninth Street Pumping Station is 
located. 

Second. That the City give its con- 
sent to the Illinois Central Railroad 
Company to use the lands between its 
present tracks and the new boundary 
line, established by this contract, for 
railroad purposes. 

Third. That the City shall cede to 
said South Park Commissioners the 
street known as Park Row, as well as 
12th street east of Michigan avenue. 

Fourth. That the City shall vacate 
Indiana avenue between 12th and 13th 
streets and a portion of the alley be- 
tween 'Michigan avenue and Indiana 
avenue south of 12th street. 

Fifth. That the City permit a change 
in the alignment of the St. Charles Air 
Line tracks. 

In this contract are included the vari- 
ous matters agreed to by the South Park 
Commissioners as condition precedent to 
the veto of the ordinance establishing 
Harbor District No. 3, presented by me 
to your Honorable Body at your meet- 
ing of November 27th, 1911. 

It seems to me no more desirable im- 
provements to the City could be ob- 
tained than the location of the Field Co- 
lumbian Museum upon the Lake Front, 
within easy reach of all the citizens and 
visitors of the City of Chicago, and the 
creation of a noble park extending from 
Park Row to 51st street,, with boule- 
vards, bathing beaches, playgrounds, 
recreation piers and lagoons, to provide 
additional breathing places for the citi- 
zens of this great community. 

I would suggest the reference of this 
communication and the agreement trans- 
mitted therewith, to your Committee on 
Harbors, Wharves and Bridges for early 
consideration and report. 

Respectfully yours, 
(Signed) Carter H. Haerison, 

Mayor.

The following communication: 

Office of the Mayor,. 
Chicago, December 11, 1911. 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — A question has been 
raised as to the authority of the Mayor 



to restore a saloon license once it has 
been revoked by him. 

I transmit herewith an opinion of the 
Corporation Counsel dealing with this 
question, in which some doubt is raised 
as to the legality of such a restoration. 
The suggestion is made, that the situa- 
tion would be greatly improved by the 
passage of an ordinance conferring upon 
the Mayor the authority to restore a re- 
voked dramshop license. Such an ordi- 
nance would definitely settle the ques- % 
tion of the Mayor's authority, rather 
than leave the mater resting as it does, 
at present, upon a practice of doubtful 
legality. 

I would, therefore, suggest the pas- 
sage, without the usual reference to a 
committee, of an amendment to Section 
1536 of The Chicago Code of 1911, en- 
titled "Revocation of Licenses", by add- 
ing thereto, the following: 

"If any license granted under this 
Article shall be revoked by the Mayor, 
he may, at his discretion, rescind such 
revocation at any time before the ex- 
piration of the license period for which 
such license was granted, and such li- 
cense, with all rights to a renewal or 
re-issue thereof, shall thereupon be 
restored to full force and effect as if 
it had not been revoked." 
Respectfully yours, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

The following opinion from the Cor- 
poration Counsel wa's transmitted with 
the foregoing communication : 

Law Department, | 
November 29, 1911. ) 
Hon. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor: 

Dear Sir — ■ Your request for an 
opinion in respect to your power to re- 
voke a dramshop license after the sar-e 
has been revoked for cause, has been 
referred to me. 

The effect of an unqualified revoca- 
tion of a dramshop license is to extin- 
guish the license. 

23 Cyc. 161. 

Black on Intoxicating Liquors. Sec. 
196. 

Woolen & Thornton on Intoxicating 
liquors, Sec. 456. 

The ordinances of the City of Chi- 
cago provide for the revocation of dram- 
shop licenses, but the subject of the re- 
storation thereof after revocation is not

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

mentioned in either the ordinances or 
the State Statutes. 

The practice of restoring revoked 
dramshop licenses by the Mayor has ob- 
tained for years, but such practice ap- 
pears to rest upon no more substantial 
basis than custom. 

The liquor ordinances now in force 
limit the number of dramshop licenses 
and provide for renewal of licenses which 
have been kept in force continuously. The 
right to a renewal of a license is in 
many cases assigned by the licensee to 
another person and belongs to such per- 
son at the time when the license is re- 
voked for some delinquency of the li- 
censee, to which delinquency the owner 
of the right to renewal of the license was 
not a party. In such cases if the license 
is revoked, the right to a renewal there- 
of will thereby be extinguished unless 
there is a legally valid restoration of the 
license. 

In view of the foregoing I deem it 
very desirable that the power to restore 
revoked dramshop licenses should be ex- 
pressly conferred upon the Mayor by or- 
dinance, instead of resting as at present 
merely on a practice of doubtful legality. 

In the case of People v. Cregier, 138 
111. 401, the Supreme Court of Illinois, 
in speaking of the power of cities and 
villages to license, regulate and pro- 
hibit the sale or giving away of any in- 
toxicating, malt, vinous, mixed or fer- 
mented liquor, held that Subdivision 46 
of Section" 1 of Article V., R. S. of Illi- 
nois — "confers the power to license, 
regulate and prohibit the sale of such 
liquors without qualification or restric- 
tion, thus leaving the whole subject to 
the absolute and unrestricted discretion 
of such municipal authorities." 

I am of the opinion that an ordinance 
conferring upon the Mayor power to re- 
store dramshop licenses which have been 
revoked by him would be valid, and I 
would recommend an amendment to Sec- 
tion 1536 of The Chicago Code of 1911, 
entitled "Revocation of Licenses", by 
adding thereto the following: 

"If any license granted under this 
Article shall be revoked by the Mayor, 
he may, at his discretion, rescind such 
revocation at any time before the ex- 
piration of the license period for 
which such license was granted, and 
such license, with all rights to a re- 
newal or re-issue thereof, shall there- 



upon be restored to full force and ef- 
fect as if it had not been revoked." 

Yours respectfully,

rescind such revocation at any time 
before the expiration of the license pe- 
riod for which such license was 
granted, and such license with all

soon make it necessary for the City to 
take steps to remove all obstructions and 
to prevent all encroachments upon the 
sidewalk space therein. The suggestion 
has been made, that the best method 
of dealing- with the situation would be 
for the City Council to set some future 
date as the -period after which nP fur- 
ther obstructions or encroachments upon 
the highways -.of the Loop District will 
be tolerated by it.

Department of Finance, ) 
December 11, 1911. | 
To the Honorable, the Mayor, and Alder- 
men in City Council Assembled: 
Gentlemen — In presenting to your 
Honorable Body the appropriation bill 
foir the year 1912, with the concurrent 
details, required by Section 42 of the 
Municipal Code, under the printed forms 
accompanying this communication, the 
Comptroller begs to add a few explana- 
tory statements. 

In the task of judiciously apportion- 
ing the estimated resources of the Cor- 
porate Fund to the departments under 
their various functional activities, so 
that justice may be preserved all around, 
and the Corporate needs and welfare of 
the City best served, uie Comptroller 
has been confronted by two important 
yet opposing elements of consideration 

On the one hand, he has recognized 
the requests for many well-deserved in- 
creases of salaries — and as concerns one 
class of employes — it has appeared to 
him as the voice of pure justice alone, 
demanding a more competent remuner- 
ation for the services of those who, to 
protect the lives and property of the 
people, must ever leave the protection 
of their own families and lives to the 
mercy of duty. 

He has realized the almost impera- 
tive necessity of many of the improved 
conditions, conducive to the health, com- 
fort and general welfare of the public, 
which are proposed in the carefully pre- 
pared estimates of the departments, and 
earnestly recommended by the citizens 
at large, and various civic organizations, 
and he has felt the same enthusiastic 
desire to accomplish these things, and 
to be instrumental in saving to the peo- 
ple their beneficient effect. 

On the other hand, however, he has

realized how entirely inadequate are the 
revenues provided for the corporate 
needs of the City, to accomplish all or 
even a very great portion of what is 
desired, and he has felt hound by duty 
to give heed to the dictates of true busi- 
ness prudence, demanding that the City 
shall live within its means, and thereby 
preserve its credit and financial honor. 

As a consequence, he has been com- 
pelled to conduct a constant arbitration 
between these two conflicting forces, en- 
deavoring to satisfy the demands of one, 
without violating the limitations of the 
other. 

As a result of this work, in which he 
gratefully acknowledges the assistance 
derived from the experienced knowledge 
and good counsel ffiven forth in consul- 
tation, by His Honor, the Mayor, he 
feels gratified that he is able to recom- 
mend for the authoritative apportion- 
ment of your Honorable Body, an aggre- 
gate amount which Avill secure some of 
the important benefits desired, and yet 
not jeopardize the solvency of the Cor- 
porate Purposes Fund, or impair its 
ability to promptly meet its obligations. 

He desires to mention a few impor- 
tant provisions embodied in his recom- 
mendations with the hope that they 
will at least be accepted as an earnest 
and sincere effort upon his part to give 
as nearly satisfaction all around as the 
financial conditions surrounding him will 
permit. 

In the first place there is recommended 
for the Police Department a 10 per cent 
increase in the salaries of the gradu- 
ated patrolmen — that is those who have 
reached the first grade; and for the Fire 
Department the same increase for the 
same class of pipemen, truckmen and 
drivers, and also assistant engineers and 
stokers. 

While necessary increases of force in 
several departments have been approved, 
the Comptroller has felt constrained be- 
cause of the insufficiency of revenue, to 
disapprove of any increases of salaries 
other than those just before mentioned. 

An increase of allowance has been 
provided in the Health Department to 
restore the former efficiency of its Bu- 
reau of Vital Statistics in keeping the 
public records of births and deaths es- 
sentially depending upon it. 

An effort has also been made to re- 
spond to the appeal of the various civic 



organizations for improvement in the 
housing conditions of the city, by provid- 
ing the Health Department with an ap- 
propriation sufficient to establish a Bu- 
reau of Sanitary Ventilation. 

There is a provision for an amount 
necessary to complete and construct cer- 
tain permanent improvements in the 
Fire Department which have been 
deemed an absolute necessity — with the 
recommendation that the amount be also 
appropriated from a bond issue and the 
amount made reimbursable from the pro- 
ceeds of any bonds issued for the same 
purpose. 

In this regard the Comptroller would 
recommend that for the further needs 
of a similar nature a selection be made 
from the estimates of the departments 
and the same having been embodied in 
the appropriation bill as contingent 
upon bond issue, be presented to the 
voters at the coming spring election. 

A provision of $50,000 for the Depart- 
ment of Electricity has been made for 
the purpose of starting at least an im- 
provement popularly demanded for a long 
time, namely, the * installation of signs 
at street intersections. 

A provision has been made for the es- 
tablishment of creosote and asphalt 
plants under the Street Department and 
also a stone-crushing plant at the House 
of Correction, so that the city may do 
its own repairing of streets with these 
materials. 

Owing to the redistriction of the city 
by wards which has taken effect since 
the estimates of the Street Department 
were presented, it has been considered 
impracticable bv the Comptroller to pass 
upon the detail of the Street Department 
as laid out in its estimate by wards. 
He has left it to the further considera- 
tion of the Finance Committee and the 
Department, recommending a sum total 
showing an increase of about $84,000 
over the allowance of last year to this 
bureau. 

The necessity of an increased allow- 
ance more adequate to the additional 
work required of the Building Inspec- 
tion Department has been generally 
conceded, but as it involves a correspond- 
ing revenue to the city and in order to 
avoid a duplication of work, it has been 
considered best to have the details of 
its consideration presented directly to 
the Finance Committee.

Other increases appearing necessary 
to the proper maintenance of various de- 
partments such as the Department of 
Electricity, Bureau of Sewers, Bureau of 
Bridges and Harbors, Board of Local 
Improvements and others, have been rec- 
ommended in such measure as the re- 
sources would permit. 

In conclusion the Comptroller desires 
to express his sincere appreciation of 
the exceedingly prompt and efficient 
manner in which the estimates have been 
prepared and forwarded by the. various 
departments, and the aid extended by 
the heads of departments and bureaus 
in considering the same. 

He desires in a special manner to give 
grateful recognition to the valuable as- 
sistance of the Honorable Chairman of 
the Finance Committee, who, despite ill 
health and fatigue from other strenuous 
duties, has so generously co-operated in 
all the details of this arduous task. 

I beg leave to remain,

CORPORATION COUNSEL. 

The Clerk presented the following com-

tion Counsel, which was ordered placed 
on file: 

Law Department, 
Chicago, December 1, 1911 
To the Honorable, the City Council of 

the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In compliance with your 
order of November 20, 1911, appearing 
at page 1724 of the council proceedings 
of that date, we beg to advise you that 
most if not all of the ordinances grant- 
ing to elevated railroad companies the 
right to operate in the city contain pro- 
visions requiring them to properly light 
their cars. To illustrate, Section 7 of 
an ordinance granted to the Metropoli- 
tan West Side Elevated Railroad Com- 
pany, April 7, 1892, provides, "they (the 



cars) shall be properly lighted with gas, 
electricity or otherwise, and thoroughly 
ventilated at all seasons; and the sys- 
tem of illumination and the sanitary 
fixtures and appliances adopted ancV 
used, shall be as are recognized as of 
the best for the purpose to which they 
are applied." 

It will, therefore, be observed that 
the proper lighting of thei cars is one of 
the conditions of the grant and one with 
which the city may compel the railroad, 
company to comply. 

Respectfully submitted,

Assistant Corporation Counsel.

Corner of 75th Street and Woodlawn 

Avenue by Illinois Central Railroad 

Company and Obstruction Caused 

Thereby to Traffic in South Chicago 

Avenue. 
To the Honorable, the City Council of 

the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Pursuant to the above 
order of your Honorable Body, passed 
November 20, 1911 (C. P. pp. 1733-4), 
this department has made investigation 
of this matter and finds that the ob- 
struction complained of was caused by 
completing the work of track elevation 
at the point in question in accordance 
with the plans for said work and as 
required by the amendatory ordinance 
therefor passed July 11, 1910 (C. P., 
pp. 1137-1140). 

The railroads crossing said streets 
having accepted said ordinance and com- 
pleted their work in accordance with its 
provisions, cannot now be compelled to 
change the same at their expense. 

However, paragraphs 7, 9 and 10, of 
Section 1, Article V of the Cities and. 
Villages Act, vest your Honorable Body 
with ample powers to widen, alter and 
grade streets, to regulate their use, and 
to prevent and remove encroachments 
or obstructions upon the same. 

Should it be deemed necessary, there- 
fore, to cause the removal of the obstruc-

Office of the Mayor. ) 

Chicago, December 18, 1911. \ 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I attach hereto a com- 
munication from the Commissioner of 
Health calling attention to the fact that 
the supply of antitoxin, appropriated for 
at the last session of the legislature, to 
be furnished by the state to cities of 
100,000 inhabitants or over, has been 
exhausted, and that unless an appropria- 
tion is made by your Honorable Body, it 
will be an impossibility to furnish anti- 
toxin during the balance of this year, 
and the year of 1912, to the poor of the 
community. 

For these reasons, I would suggest 
that the attached order appropriating 
$500 for purchasing anti-toxin, for the 
remaining days of 1911, be passed with- 
out the usual reference to a Committee, 
and that the Committee on Finance be 
instructed to make an appropriation of 
$6,000, to be expended in the purchase 
and distribution of anti-toxin for the 
year 1912. 

Respectfully yours, 

(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor.

nished by the State Board of Health to 
the City of Chicago, and an emergency

transmitted therewith, referred to the 
Committee on Gas, Oil- and Electric 
Light: 

Office of the Mayor, } 
Chicago, December 18, 1911. } 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I beg leave to transmit 
herewith a communication from the Com- 
missioner of Public Works, relative to 
electrolysis and the serious damage be- 
ing done to water pipes, gas pipes and 
other sub-surface metallic structures be- 
longing to the city, and to public util- 
ity corporations doing business in the 
city. 

From this communication, it appears 
that on February 1st, 1909, the general 
electrolysis ordinance was amended to 
permit ground return wires to be so ar- 
ranged "that the difference of potential 
between the grounded dynamo terminal 
and any point on the return circuit will 
not exceed twenty- five volts." 

The City Electrician, I understand, 
takes the position that "there should be 
no such thing recognized as ground re- 
turn wires." 

Mr. E. B. Ellicott, Electrical Engineer 



for the Sanitary District of Chicago, and 
for eight years City Electrician of Chi- 
cago, takes the position that "the maxi- 
mum difference in potential be fixed at 
eight volts." 

The ordinance passed by your Honor- 
able Body, February 1st, 1909, permits 
a difference of potential of twenty-five 
volts, which, I am advised by the expert 
now investigating the subject of elec- 
trolysis for. the City of Chicago, is posi- 
tively ruinous to all metallic underground 
work. 

On November 20th, 1911, I transmit- 
ted to your Honorable Body an exhaus- 
tive report covering the general ques- 
tion of electrolysis and the damage 
caused by it in the city streets, which 
was referred to your Committee on Gas, 
Oil and Electric Light. 

I would suggest the reference of the 
attached communication from the Com- 
missioner of Public Works to the same 
committee, with instructions that this 
matter be given immediate attention. 
Bespectfully yours. 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor,

Law Department, ] 

Chicago, December 15, 1911. ) 
In re opening of North 71st avenue. 
To the Honorable, the City Council of 

the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — At your meeting, Decem- 
ber 4, 1911, the following order was 
passed : 



December 18, 101 



COM M I N1CATIONS, ETC. 



2001 



"Ordered, That the Corporation 
Counsel be and he is hereby directed 
to take such steps as may be necessary 
to secure the opening to traffic of North 
71st avenue and North 71st court 
across the right of way of the Chicago, 
Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad." 
We have investigated and found that 
on the 11th day of July, 1910, the City 
Council passed an ordinance granting per- 
mission to said company to construct, 
maintain and operate two additional 
main tracks within the present limits 
of its right of way across North 68th 
avenue. North 70th avenue and North 
72nd avenue. 

This permission and authority is to 
continue so long as* public necessity re- 
quires. 

Section 6 of said ordinance provides 
that in consideration of the above privi- 
leges said company agrees to construct, 
within a reasonable time, a subway at 
North 69th avenue. (C. P. July 11, i911, 
p. 1179.) 

Prior to the passage of said ordinance 
the City Council had passed an ordinance 
providing for the elevation of the tracks 
of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul 
Railroad Company beginning at North 
40th avenue and as far west as North 
47th avenue, (C. P. January 13, 1902, 
pp. 1806-7). June 27, 1910, the City 
Council passed an ordinance requiring 
the elevation of the tracks of said com- 
pany between Ashland avenue and North 
Lawndale avenue. (C. P. 967-993.) 

These ordinances provide for the con- 
struction of subways without compen- 
sation, for right of way, by said Chi- 
cago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad 
Company, across all streets for which 
no provision is made, the work to be done 
by said companv and the expense to be 
borne by the City of Chicago, (C. P. 
June 27, 1910, pp." 967-993) . 

It will be seen from the foregoing short 
exposition of the matter that North 
71st avenue is not included in any of 
said ordinances. 

Unless said company has acted upon 
the ordinance of the City Council passed 
July 11, 1910, your Honorable Body is 
vested with power to amend said ordi- 
nance so as to include not only the open- 
ing of said street, but of all other streets 
for which provision has not been made. 

Irrespective of the elevation of the 
tracks by said company, your Honorable 



Body is vested with power to open North 
71st avenue a»d North 71st court by the 
passage of an appropriate ordinance de- 
claring such purpose. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) Nicholas Michels, 

Assistant Corporation Counsel. 
Approved : 
(Signed) Wm. H. Sexton, 

Corporation Counsel. 



INSPECTOR OF GAS METERS AND 
GAS. 

The Clerk presented the following 
communication submitted by the Inspec- 
tor of Gas Meters and Gas, which was 
ordered placed on file: 

Bureau or Gas Inspection, ) 
Chicago, December 13, 1911. ) 
To the Honorable, the City Council of 
the City of Chicago: 
Gentlemen — The illuminating gas 
tested at the 12th street station this 
day showed the presence of sulphuretted 
hydrogen sufficient to slightly stain lead 
acetate paper. This is a technical viola- 
tion of the ordinance, but the very small 
amount of this impurity indicated by 
this test is of no injury to the con- 
sumer. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) W. D. Wilcox. 

City Gas Inspector. 



BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

The Clerk presented a request submit- 
ted by the Board of Education for au-

Whereas. The law affecting the li- 
censing of automobiles is that enacted 
by the State Legislature; and 

Whereas, Also, by that law a license 
for an automobile is required to be re- 
newed annually, thereby necessitating a 
change of numbers annually; and 

Whereas, In the enforcement of regu- 
lations relative to the use of automo- 
biles on highways, it is necessary for 
municipalities to identify the owner of 
automobiles by the number borne by the 
automobiles ; and 

Whereas, It would greatly facilitate 
the enforcement of police regulations if 
the number issued to the licensee of an 
automobile were only changed when the 
ownership was changed; and 

Whereas, It would greatly aid the 
municipal authorities if a directory, 
showing the owner of each license num- 
ber, were to be issued and supplements 
thereto prepared and issued from time 
to time showing the change in ownership 
or the ownership of additional license 
numbers; now, therefore. 

Be it Resolved by the City Council of 
the City of Chicago, That the Secre- 
tary of State be and he is hereby re- 
quested to co-operate and aid the mu- 
nicipal authorities in the particulars
